If you've ever found a killer deal on cheap pots but they don't have drainage

holes, this video is for you.

We're going to go through my foolproof method to drilling holes in them without

breaking them.

Kevin Espiritu here from Epic Gardening where it's my goal to help you grow a

greener thumb.

And one of the ways that we can grow greener thumb is by more successfully

cultivating our indoor plants. Now, I found these,

$33 for all four of these pots. Pretty good deal.

I just recently had a video on how to find these cheap pots,

so check that out if you haven't already.

But the commonality in all these pots is they don't have drainage holes.

The problem is sometimes when you drill a drainage hole,

you're going to crack the pot. Now these are cheap - $7.

It's not the end of the world if I crack this pot, but I don't want to.

It's wasteful and it's just frustrating.

And so what we're talking about in today's video are the drill bits you'll need

as well as the technique that seems to work. So stay tuned.

Let's go ahead and get into it. As far as materials go,

of course you're going to need your pot and the bits that have seemed to work

the best for me. This one right here is a glass and tile bit,
